We are neighbors of Danny & Carol and Mrs. Taylor always came for Thanksgiving. I believe one year their oven had malfunctioned. We were frying a Turkey and Danny told his Mother that he was going to use "our Super Oven" to cook their turkey, knowing that she would never eat a fried turkey. She loved it and said it was the best turkey she ever ate. We all just smiled.
We are so sorry for your loss and you and your family are in our prayers.

You are very much in my thoughts and prayers at the death of your mother. May God hold you in the Palm of His hand at this time. I will not be able to come to the funeral as Jim and I will be in Alabama for his cousins' reunion. Otherwise, I would be there. Please know that you are in our prayers.
Much love and support to you.
